Gibson, David

Live wisely. Live freely and generously. Live with a big heart and open hands. Live life as a gift. Through profound engagement with the author of Ecclesiastes, Gibson takes a sobering, and ultimately hopeful look at the vanity of life through the lens of Christ’s ultimate victory over death.

Product Description

Only by keeping the end in mind can a person truly learn how to live in the here and now. Living in light of our death reorients us to our limitations as creatures and helps us see God’s good gifts right in front of us—enabling us to live wisely, freely, and generously. Drawing on wisdom from the book of Ecclesiastes, David Gibson teaches us to embrace this countercultural mind-set and live life backward: to take the one thing in the future that is certain—our death—and work backward when it comes to our priorities, goals, desires, and decisions. If we do this, we'll learn that only with a proper perspective on death can we find meaning and satisfaction in life—and see just how great God is.
